    I thought I had some of this, but I don't. :cry: What can I do for a substitute? It's for the Sausage & Apple Herb Stuffing recipe.

    Whenever substituting, you must realize that the flavor will not be as originally intended in the recipe. As such, it is wise to begin your substitution with half the specified recipe amount and then adjust to your own personal tastes. You should always feel free to adjust and add to any recipe to suit yourself and your family. Who knows? You just might create a new family favorite!

    This is too late to help you today, but here is how I figure out PC pantry substitutes.
    The PC cookbooks usually have a Chef's Corner tip on subtitutions for pantry ingredients, so all you need to do is find a recipe that has that pantry item.

    On CC, I searched for "Specify Ingredients = rosemary herb"
    That brought up this list:

    Your recipe search for ... Can be found in ... Page

    Artichoke Chicken with Roasted Potatoes,29 Minutes to Dinner,15
    Crusty Herb Cheese Bread, Product Use and Care
    Deep-Dish Artichoke Focaccia,It's Good for You,25
    Grilled Garlic Bread,Casual Cooking,25
    Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops,Casual Cooking,15
    Mushroom Focaccia Bread,All the Best,37
    Portobello Pita Pockets,It's Good for You,29
    Roast Breast of Turkey with Apple Scented Pan Gravy, Product Use and Care
    Roasted Garlic & Red Pepper Dip,It's Good for You,24
    Rosemary Herb Chicken Bites, Product Use and Care
    Rosemary Pita Chips, It's Good for You, 22
    Rosemary Pita Chips,The Pampered Chef® Stoneware Inspirations,22
    Sausage and Apple Herbed Stuffing, Product Use and Care
    Savory Herbed Stuffing, Product Use and Care

    Now, this won't help if you're a new consultant without any cookbooks. The Product Use and Care recipes never show the substitutions, but the newer cookbook recipes usually do.

    From 29 Minutes To Dinner, the Chef's Corner note says:
    1 tsp crushed dried rosemary, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp coarsely ground black pepper

    All the Best just says to substitute crushed dried rosemary leaves.

    Just something to keep in mind for the future - if you have the newer cookbooks, they usually have substitutions in them.
